2001 Hyundai Santa Fe GL 2WD 4dr SUV (2.7L 6cyl 4A)
2003 Ford F250, 1999 Subaru, 1995 Isuzu, 1995 Honda, 2001 Honda, 2004 Honda, I can go on and on about cars and trucks I've owned. This Hyundai however has to be the best vehicle that I have ever owned. I would recommend this SUV to anyone who has a small (2,3,4) size family. It's good in and around the city and even when we take a trip from Daytona to Washington DC. Personally, I've told my wife that I want a newer model 08,09,10,11,12,ect. I know this is the 1st so there are some minor flaws.
Space for mid-size SUV, both seats in back lay flat, trunk opes in two ways, nice stock stereo, nice power too.
Better engine design. I've had to had typical work done to mine, nothing last forever even with common maintenance. And they may have fixed this since 2000,2001 but I've had half the engine taken off to replace pulleys and the radiator. Parts for this model are NOT CHEAP keep that in mind ONLY FLAW.
